Top Ten Reasons to Work the Parking Lot at GA for the State Fair this Weekend:

We are still in need of help as of noon on Thursday:
Friday, August 30 Noon – 4pm (1)
Sunday, Sept. 1 1pm – 4 pm (4)
Sunday, Sept. 1 8pm – Midnight (3)
Monday, Sept. 2 8am – Noon (1)
Monday, Sept. 2 Noon – 4 pm (4)
Monday, Sept. 2 8pm – Midnight (3)
Call Karen Landkamer to sign up, 651.774.7620

And now, the Top Ten Reasons to Work the Parking Lot this Weekend:
10. Great people-watching, without paying to get into the Fair.
9. Parking lot workers get to tell people where to go!
8. FREE FOOD? – Some fair-goers share their Sweet Martha’s Cookies when they get off the bus.
7. Attractive neon vests and orange flags make you stand out in a crowd.
6. You will receive enough “Thank You’s” to last the whole month of September.
5. Bring your best friend, your teenage grandchild, your cousin – and build memories for a lifetime. (Or maybe at least a week?)
4. People who work from 8pm to Midnight don’t need any sunscreen.
3. Every person who helps earns more for the gift from the State Fair to our church (but only four per 4-hour shift).
2. It won’t get you into heaven, but you can sit up front at church ANY time you want!
And the #1 reason to work the parking lot this weekend:
1. It will be cooler than it is TODAY!

With gratitude for YOU, Pastor Bonnie
